Re: The 10 to 100 Million+ Points PLUS club, All are welcom

Oh yeah, get a 1080 ti. I had one machine with a 980, 980 ti and 1080 that did about 1.4 million ppd, replaced the 980 and 980 ti with the 1080 ti, now it's about the same ppd (maybe a little more) for 150 watts less, it's nice. I might stick the 980 ti back in, and see how that goes, but it'll take...

Re: SPCR Folds Team Blog

Looks like something wonky happened with the gpu setup. Any driver updates or anything? I'd check the device manager, make sure the gpu is still recognized. If it is, then try adding the gpu slot back, see if it works again.

Re: SPCR Folds Team Blog

Just an FYI, I've had a couple of nvidia 980 gtx cards for a while, they produce about 300-370k ppd, and the power consumption is fairly low, my dual 980 system runs at about 380 watts, when they're both running fah core 18 jobs. I recently picked up a gtx 980 ti, and that's producing from 400-470k ...

Well Neil, if you're looking for a better card, I'm sure I could spare one from my stack. I have 4 gtx 460s just sitting on a shelf, and I could probably dig up a 560 or two, but I think they're mounted in a shut down system. You might even talk me out of one of my idled gtx 770 cards, although one ...

Re: Advice on a "second-grade" folding rig

You could try OCing it, probably wouldn't hurt the cpu too much if you put a decent cooler on it. I used a couple of 560s for a while, they're pretty decent. I'm not sure how much you could OC the 560 without it making a lot of noise, though, it depends a lot on the card. Having decent airflow in th...

Eh, haswell isn't so bad. I've got an i7 4770k overclocked up to 4.2 Ghz now, the temps get up into the mid 70s, but so far it seems pretty stable. I'm also using the built in video, so that might be adding some extra heat. But so far, it seems fine.
